what he's saying, rubio scored the biggest points when he talked about big government. >> the idea more taxes and more government spending is the best way to help hard working middle class taxpayers an old idea that's failed every timist been tried. more government won't help you get ahead. it will hold you back. more government isn't going to create more opportunities. it's going to limit them. and more government isn't going to inspire new ideas. new businesses, and new private-sector jobs. it's going to create uncertainty. >> republican senator rand paul gave the tea party response and chastised both parties for spending too much. he also talked about limiting the reach of the federal government. >> what america needs is not robin hood but adam smith. in the year we won our independence, adam smith described what creates the wealth of nations, he described a limited government that largely did not interfere with individuals in their pursuit of happiness. all that we are, all that we wish to be is now threatened by the notion that you can have something for nothing, that you can have
